KAY GREGORY MCINTIRE Martha Katharine "Kay" Gregory McIntire, of Wilmington, NC passed away on Thursday, July 26 2018 as a result of a vehicle accident in Georgia. Kay was a selfless and beautiful soul who helped so many, in so many ways. Her life exemplified the love of God, the source of her peaceful strength. Kay's life was devoted to serving others, from her family to complete strangers. Her sweet smile and warm hugs are and will be tremendously missed. Kay graduated from New Hanover High School and UNC-Wilmington. She was retired from New Hanover County Schools where she dedicated most of her years teaching in the pre-K program. Her excellence and love as a teacher impacted the lives of generations of our children. Kay adored her family and absolutely loved spending time with her grandchildren, all of whom are heartbroken by our loss. The family will hold a Memorial after her husband, Ken, recovers from his injuries. We find comfort in the tremendous outpouring of prayers, love and support and in knowing that she rests in the arms of her Lord and Savior. Kay was born in Wilmington, NC on September 28, 1950 to Paul and Martha Gregory. She was predeceased by her father, Paul E. Gregory; her grandparents Purnell and Gaylord Harryman and Bernard and Margaret Gregory. Kay is survived by her husband, Ken McIntire; her mother Martha H. Gregory; her children, Kate McIntire Struntz (DJ); Anna McIntire Clark (Ben), all of Wilmington; Brooks McIntire Inglese of Folly Beach, SC; and Paul McIntire of Fairhope, AL and six grandchildren, Jonah and Lorelai Struntz; Carson and Davis-Laine Clark; Cecilia Inglese; and Liam McIntire. Additionally, Kay is survived by six siblings, Gene Gregory (Dianne) of Germantown, TN; Purnell Gregory Edwards (Bobby); Anna Marie Gregory Turner (Allan); Ned Gregory (Debbie); Beth Gregory Lanier (Jef); and Alan Gregory (Pam), and all of Wilmington. Many nieces and nephews, many great nieces and great nephews .
